Now, the trio are set to return to again hunt for the next hip-hop next sensation. The show’s renewal was announced at the same time as Love Is Blind, which has been renewed for two more seasons, as Netflix continues to push into unscripted territory.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” says Brandon Riegg, Netflix Vice President of Nonfiction Series and Comedy Specials. “We pride ourselves on creating a favorite show for any taste, and we’re thrilled fans embraced all of these series with such enthusiasm and shared passion.
